Personal Data

Personal Data

Information about a person such a date-of-birth, weight, DNA and finger prints, religious preference, personal habits, citizen and community status, and personal sins.  It is information that would not exist if the person did not exist.  Personal information can be private (weight measured in the privacy of a bathroom), or public (weight as recorded on a driver’s license and used to target weight-loss prospects), or confidential (weight on a health record that is part of the doctor-patient relationship.)  Although it is about a specific individual and, therefore the property of that individual, it can be accessed by others (our driver’s license can be accessed by the issuing state.)
